The term y'all is growing in popularity in the north, and I've heard it spoken outside the U.S. too.
Well there's y'a'll, which is appropriate when addressing two or three, but when addressing a group, I believe the proper term is "all y'all."

Re: Oxycontin

Who are these "medical professionals?" How, in this day and age of computerized-everything, does this kind of prescribing pattern go unnoticed? Who in their right mind spends $200,000 for a medical degree and then risks everything? Who are these peoples' professional peers, and why aren't they speak...

Re: Long Term Care

The problem is that LTC insurance is unlikely to be much help, given the structure of covering only the first 2-3 years. For many people that's ok since most are in nursing homes less than that time, but by the same token that should be a piece of cake for a couple with a big retirement portfolio. ...

Re: Climate Change

Even if we reduced our carbon emissions ala the NGD, would it matter if China, India and other emerging countries did nothing and continued to pollute the crap out of the environment? Up until this point, the beneficiary of and the propelling force for all that crap generated by China has been the ...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

It's interesting, though, to speculate why all of a sudden this time-honored tradition is not only being called out, but prosecuted. It's always worth watching and analyzing the power dynamics at play, as there appear to be major shifts under way. Decades ago, I worked with a visiting physician/scie...
